My goal is to produce a unique WC4 experience. I know I have a lot of friends who would never sit down to watch the game much less play it. However they may like to see a movie... So I've been editing the clips into a logical path (omitting alternate choices etc.) As well, although not including gameplay all clips in any given path add up to around 2h50min, my goal is to also include necessary info from gameplay and yet keep the running time to around 2h 30min...You can download a three minute sample of the kind of thing AD is trying to achieve here (55MB), or a lower resolution video here (21MB, a different scene). AD would also appreciate some help and feedback on the project in this thread.
I have almost finished cutting together all the video I haven't dropped either for time or pacing... I may still drop more scenes in the future. Currently I just have the end sequence (the 3 or 4 part battle with the Vesuvius) that I need to work out. I've been trying to minimize the number of gameplay scenes, partly because of the effort needed, but also so that it's not too repetitive.
